  • Serenity and peace live here! We were there to visit family and really enjoyed everything! From the small coffee shop to the breakfast spot to the walk on the beach, we enjoyed it all...the cottages and inns in this area are so cozy and quaint
  • My husband and I love Ogunquit. I don't think we have ever had a bad day there. The beaches are clean and the company is fabulous. I hope you love strolling in and out of the village shops as much as we do.
  • The cleanest most beautiful beach in York County. Try to get there early to park in the lot. Ogunquit is a nice seaside town that is as one would imagine an East coast Beach town might be. Spend the day inside a postcard!
  • It's beautiful! Todays weather has turned out to be the best day all year. Great planning on my part (pats back).
  • This is a super wintertime destination. Walk Marginal Way from town to Perkins Cove and back. Great exercise with excellent ocean views...w/out the summer crowd.
